‘Thank you very much for all your help, we collected our race numbers this morning and ran the race.  I must say that it was very challenging but we both enjoyed it and it certainly gave us a tour of Cape Town.   The race was very well organised, there were plenty of Marshalls and enough refreshment tables (which did not run out of water.  All of this and when we got to the top of Koeksister hill there were beautiful koeksisters for us to eat, most welcome.  My wife even wants the recipe as they are really nice not like the horrible ones that you buy in the shops. Anyway, it was just a quick email to say thank you for the whole experience, as out of town visitors from KZN we were made to feel welcome by all. Thanks Barry and Josephine’

‘Just wanted to say what a wonderful race/walk on Sunday. The marshals were great, smiling and wishing all the ladies a Happy Mother’s Day.  It was very well run and my friends and I will certainly run it again and tell others to do it.  Kind regards.

‘Hi. I ran the 10 km on Sunday. Just wanted to say as follows: Great race, great route, great vibe and great organisation. So thanks so much – will definitely be back next year (maybe even for the 21km) if the Creator spares me! Also, please thank all the marshals who came out on Mothers’ Day.  It’s always fantastic to see such amazing voluntarism. Cape Town rocks!!! Kind Regards Neill Snape’

My daughter and I would just like to say an extreme thanks to the organisers of this event. I did the 10km run by myself and then did the 10km walk with my daughter. We enjoyed it so, so much, even koeksuster hill. I have never done an event where the Marshalls are so friendly, every single one of them. My daughter loved walking through the Bo-Kaap, areas she had never seen before. Koeksuster Hill was a killer but the fresh koeksusters made it completely worthwhile and we enjoyed the camaraderie more than I can explain.Cannot wait for next year. Thanks again, Regards  Yolanda Dell and Courtney Williams

Please pass on congratulations and thanks to all involved in organizing the half marathon yesterday.  It was brilliant.  What an awesome route!  Friendly assistance at the entry tables.  The marhalls were excellent, two at each point no less, with friendly water tables and such a great vibe.  I will certainly be back next year. Many thanks. David Muller (Strand Athletic Club)

The Slave route was awesome especially the Koeksister hill. It was the highlight of our slave walk and we could not stop talking about koeksister hill. Then to top it all a  reward of koeksister and Jive that was my energy booster to finish the walk. Just loved the route.    The entertainment was excellent.  Linda Sulliman

I would like to thank you and the committee for a well organized race which I ran on Sunday. The marshals where unbelievable, friendly and encouraging. The water tables outstanding. The koeksusters where out of this world, if there was a shortage, please blame me, as I took three helping. I must admit that I did battle with the course toughness of the course (I did the 21.1) which I found extremely full of history. Just wish I had more knowledge before the race. I must also thank you for advising me of the opening of the on line entries.  Kind Regards Myer Guinsberg
